The Motherlove Organic Farm
For many years before Motherlove was founded, Kathryn Higgins was growing herbs and teaching others to use them. After she became pregnant and gave birth to her first child, the products she made for herself and gave to friends became so popular people begged her to sell them. So she did – and Motherlove was born.
This spring of 2014 we’ve come full circle. Motherlove is now the proud operator of an organic farm and educational community center on the Front Range. The 120 acre farm will supply us with local, sustainable, certified organic herbs for Motherlove’s products, as well as traditional organic grains and vegetables for our tables and other’s.
For the farm’s educational community center, plans include classes for families on growing, harvesting and preparing herbs for use in personal care products, including the herbs used in Motherlove products. We will also offer herb identification sessions for wild edible and medicinal native plants. Additional educational series will focus on the importance of organics in the food industry, sustainability, biodiversity and other environmental issues, including water conservation.
It’s a dream come true for us, and we can think of no better way for Motherlove to reconnect with our roots and honor Kathryn’s legacy than farming. Our farm also gives us a chance to give back to the community that has given us so much, allowing us to share Kathryn’s knowledge and wisdom with our friends and neighbors.
